ToDoGenius iOS App: Like a Tiny Secretary in Your Pocket

The Low-Budget iPod Touch Phone
Thanks to the ZTE Peel, iPod Touch owners can easily convert their gadget into an iPhone. But if the device isn’t available in your area – or you’re just plain cheap – Lifehacker reader Kevin has a solution: Kevin used the plastic packaging of his 3rd generation iPod Touch as an anchor for the stock earphones, meaning this mod cost him zero dollars.
